Thread: A couple more with twisted finials

  1. #1

    A couple more with twisted finials

    Here are some pictures from the last batch I took. The first is Cherry, 4" x 9-1/2". I filled a void with turquoise, Holly finial and WOP finish;




    Next, is Tulip Poplar, 9" dia. x 12" tall. Walnut finial, threaded. AO finish. The wife has layed claims on this one.





    As always, comments and critique are welcome.

    Those twisted finials are just excellent! You sure seem to have those nailed down tight

    Man, you're gonna own the trademark on those twisted finials if you keep it up. Great work, man.

    Did you not look at the photos? They're not nailed. They're screwed on.

    Both look just terrific.
    I like the Poplar Tulip best.
    Unique finials, they look great.

    Sometimes these pictures make me to ditch all my tools except for my hammer and crowbar...!

    I can't even imagine making those twisted pieces but they sure are sharp....



    Nice
